    I have often wondered how a stripe would work for OBW. Yours is wonderul!

    Good friends are like quilts - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth.

    I learn every day and on this site for sure. I would not have had the ability to see those blocks from that fabric. I just need to become more daring. Good job!

    I think the black blackground really brings out the OBW blocks. Here is a small picture of one that I made using purple flower fabric.

    I just love the contrast. Your blocks are really beautiful no matter how you lay them out. I think it was great for you to see this material (and picture it in your mind) as a OBW from the very beginning. That is a real talent.

    Amazing what you made out of that material. Creative thinking at its best.

    I would never have thought of that fabric for a quilt, because while I love the colors, I don't love the stripes. I have never made a OBW, so wouldn't have known just how pretty it could be. You are turning that fabric into a beautiful and unique quilt. I love it! Please post a picture when you are finished.

    Like the black - you can more easily see the design - cool!

    Very pretty!!! The black spacers really set the blocks off. Did you leave any on the bolt for the rest of us? I think that I will run off to Walmart this afternoon!

    Aw, you remind me of my DM. She always knew how to match fabric and pattern. The second picture is a fantastic example of possibilities.

    Very nice. Love the black. Makes me want to find some kind of odd ball fabric and do this.

    I Love it! It's amazing how a fabric deemed "ugly" can change when cut into a OBW!

    Isn't it fun to take "ugly" fabric and turn it into a masterpiece? My 9 year old granddaughter did that for an award winner at Columbia County, OR, Fair this past summer.
